The source for the design of the color house is one of the names of Juane Xue namely “晶”. In Dutch, “晶” means crystal. The chosen crystal form has 21 facets (triangles) and symbolizes the 21st century.
These 21 facets mean that no facet is straight on the ground. The shape of the windows and doors are also derived from the word “晶”. The Chinese character “晶” consists of the combination of three characters “日”. This sign stands for the Chinese word "sun". Doors and windows have all evolved from the word “日”. Under the architect's imagination, the word “sun” has been used for windows and doors.nationalgallery.nl/national-gallery/verfhuis
